Journalist Agba Jalingo Granted Bail After 174 Days In Detention

Detained Journalist and Publisher of CrossRiver Watch, Agba Jalingo has been granted bail by a Federal High Court in Calabar after spending 174 days in detention.

Jalingo was arrested on August 22, 2019 over a report alleging that Governor Ben Ayade diverted N500 million belonging to the state.

He was granted bail in the sum of N10m naira by Justice Sule Shuaibu after his lawyer, Attah Ochinke filed an application for his bail.

The court asked that those standing as surety for the journalist must make a refundable deposit of N700,000 to court registry to perfect the bail.

Recall that Jalingo was earlier denied bail twice by another judge, Simon Amobeda, who recently withdrew from the case.
